About Norma

I speak four languages to help you with your booking; English, Spanish, French, Italian.

Norma purchased this condo in 2006

Why Norma chose Nuevo Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta - Nuevo Vallarta is a fine, safe destination in Mexico with fantastic weather during the winter months with daily international flights. Our condo is located 10 minutes North from the airport in a lush resort area with miles and miles of walkable beach with all the modern amenities, yet with the charm of Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

A unique benefit that my husband and I enjoy while staying at our property is listening to the ocean 'roar' at night... we leave one of our terrace doors open 24/7.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our wonderful guests from Canada sent me an email and I quote them,

"It is clear that you have put a lot of effort in planning this nice studio. We have taken permission to have a couple of friends of ours visit the apartment because, in our opinion, it is fully equipped and very confortable, with a marvelous view of the sunset."

People looking for design and quality, this is the place to rent. You will enjoy our studio inmensely..... give it a try; you will be pleasantly surprised!!!

Well appointed 8th floor studio

  • 5 of 5

We spent twelve days in this beautiful studio apartment which overlooks the courtyard and pool area with a side view of the ocean. The balcony was comfortable all day with very little direct exposure to the sun. It is on the 8th floor but the elevators are efficient and not crowded. This unit has it own WIFI. The resort has many amenities, but we also bought a temporary membership to the health club which gave us access to a great fitness, pool, tennis and pickleball courts. It also included many fitness classes (yoga, spinning, pilates, fit and tone, etc.) There are many very good local restaurants that are amazingly inexpensive. Only disappointment was that in four tries I never found a good margarita.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comment. I'm so glad you enjoyed it all except for a good Margarita! I'll ask others to comment on a place with excellent ones and let you know! As my guest states, the place is in a superb location both in the building and in Nuevo Vallarta with great extensive beach, beautiful sunsets, beautiful flora.... the terrace does not get the harsh direct sun (like others) so it's quite comfortable! We keep the place in an excellent state and are always taking care of any matters to better it; it's our own personal vacation home so attentions given to quality. The inexpensive temporary membership to the health club is a way to increase your physical activities with sports and classes, plus a discount on the use of the golf course and the El Tigre restaurant! Thank you for your comment and looking forward to having you back like many of my guests! Have a wonderful 2017 !!! Norma :-)

Everything just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

This condo on the 8th floor of Playa Royale was perfect in every way -- beautiful views, marvelous balcony and clean, cozy, studio with ample space and king bed. Also, we loved having a kitchen for breakfasts, snacks, drinks and leftovers from the many restaurants within walking distance. Shopping center with grocery also within walking distance and the Tuesday farmer's market is right across the street. The balcony was perfect and private for anytime of day for reading, napping, and catching up on projects. Walking the beach, or taking the bike path in the center of the tree-lined boulevard was great for exploring and going out shopping or eating. The Beach Club at the condo was a great place for happy hour and sunsets & has a small restaurant. Everyone on staff at the Playa Royale was super friendly and went out of their way to help. Everything was clean, well maintained, and the grounds & pool areas are lovely. Puerto Vallarta with the malecón, old old town, restaurants, shops, and entertainment is only a bus ride away! And, finally, Norma our host, was most helpful from the initial planning & questions to the details on the area and the condo as we put our trip together. Thanks, C & K

Owner's Response: I'm very happy that my guests liked our condo, the whole complex, the area, etc. It's a wonderful place to go have a great vacation! The beaches are simply marvelous and kilometers long for walking. We have endeavored to make our vacation home a great place for guests with all the modern necessary amenities. There are NO negative surprises... only beautiful gardens, beaches, and lots to do! Our condo was appointed with overall quality in mind with a "zen" feeling to it.

Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the accommodations. Location, Location, Location! It was like home away from home. To purchase groceries there is a grocery store just a short walk away. There is also a pharmacy in the grocery store which can come in handy. We were on the go every day. You can catch the local bus to town just across the street. Cabs are extremely easy to get as well. Just go to the main lobby and they will help you. This condo is very close to beach, pool and the beautiful court yards. The hospital is just across the street so there is never a worry if you should need a doctor! We also found that every Tuesday there is a farmers market across the street in the hospital back parking lot. There is fresh fish, bread, pastry and beautiful Mexican jewelry, baskets, and different wares. Very fun event! Eating out is also a joy! You must take the free shuttle to the Golf Course for Sunday Brunch. It is to die for!! You just can't beat this location. It is in the heart of it all yet it has a beautiful view of the ocean. It is so peaceful, quiet and very laid back. It's a must see and stay location. We loved it!! The people there are so friendly and welcoming. Can't wait until we can return. Thanks Norma you made this a very pleasant and easy property to rent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and information for other interested parties to read and have guidance as to the overall area, condo complex and our personal condo. Indeed, it's a great place to spend your vacation without depleting your wallet and still have US standards, quality and safety from the drinking water to property guards. Lots of restaurants to go to within short distances and many activities to do, or, simply relax at the beautiful and clean beach in front of our property or relax by the pools.

Great studio, very nice appartment complex, super beach, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for ten days, just after the holiday crowd was gone. The studio is very clean, decorated with taste and with comfort in mind; nothing is missing for a relaxing stay on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Quiet and secure (the front desk people are nice and helpful), the building is close to the Paradise village grocery store and walking distance to good restaurants (try El Dinamito for great fish).

We had no problem getting chairs and a palapa on the beach. Norma was very informative to all our questions and pleasant to do business with. (Et elle parle français!) We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Yes indeed it's one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and it's just on our property! It's cleaned daily and care is taken to not allow glass to avoid accidents. You can take your own food and drinks or have them delivered from the Beach Club right there to your palapa. We strive to please our guests and are always making our condo better. We have many returning guests for they appreciate what we can provide them with versus a hotel or a rental per se. It's our own vacation little piece of paradise! Yes, I speak Spanish, French, Italian and English :-) Merci bien pour votre commentaire. A bientôt mes amis! Gracias Merci Grazie Thank you! :-)

Beautiful Condo and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this great studio condo for one week over New Years Eve. The condo is perfect for a vacation stay, and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. This is a nice resort, and we enjoyed the fireworks on the beach on New Years Eve. We cooked in a few nights using the fully-equipped kitchen, and also enjoyed the nearby restaurants, which are within walking distance. The beach at this complex is by far the nicest in the area. It was busy when we were there, but we always had a papala or pool chair. There is also a shopping complex within walking distance, making it easy to get groceries, etc. Norma was very pleasant to deal with, and we will definitely be going back!

My husband and I spent a week in this fabulous studio. We've stayed at Playa Royale several times and it gets better each year. Norma was wonderful to work with throughout the booking process. We watched the sunset from the balcony each night and enjoyed the comfortable accommodations. The facility staff is very kind and always helpful. We dined at a different restaurant each night, but made our breakfast and lunch in the fully equipped kitchen. There was cable TV so we could watch some of the Winter Olympics, but other than that we just enjoyed the beautiful beach and sunshine! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
